Shakespeare Distillery has announced the launch of a new limited edition Kaffir Lime & Orange Gin in time for summer, featuring a blend of refreshing citrus flavours.
The team at the independent artisan spirit producer have layered kaffir lime leaves, lime peel, orange peel and lemon thyme to give a depth of citrus flavours. Botanicals combined include almonds, ginger, black peppercorns, traditional juniper, coriander and orris.

The Kaffir Lime & Orange Gin is the perfect refreshing drink to sip on a lovely warm summer evening!”
The new gin is available in three bottle options and retails at £34 for a 50cl bottle, £17.50 for a 20cl bottle and £6.50 for a 5cl bottle. They are available to purchase through the distillery’s online store, the distillery’s shop o at No. 1 High Street in Stratford-upon-Avon.
The brand has recommended that the gin be served with tonic water, ice and a wedge of lime, or, alternatively, shaking up into a White Lady cocktail.
